Reminding Myself of a Few Things



This picture speaks to my heart in many ways:

It reminds me of my love for bunnies...
during some of my darkest days with infertility, God sent me a tiny baby rabbit to dropper feed.  That little bunny helped me to not lose hope.  As I dropper fed it through the wee hours of the night, I remember God answered my prayers to have something small and baby-like to nurture.  God even had my chocolate labrador bring me this answer to prayer- Poppy found the bunny nest, as I gardened near it she carefully mouthed the baby and dropped it at my feet. Sometimes God answers your prayers in ways that are not expected, but bring joy and peace to you in the midst of the battle.

It reminds me to take a good look around.  
Sometimes I just need to sit back and gather my thoughts.  So many things go on in the hours of my day, sometimes I just need to find a good leaning post to rest and ponder at. This has been a hard year, I could use a bit more refreshing from His hand. (I am sure we all could, right?)

It reminds me of the fact that winter is coming. 
BRRRRrrr...I am no lover of the white stuff.

It reminds me that I am pondering this Bible verse...

O Ephraim, what more have I to do with idols? 
I will answer him and care for him.
I am like a green pine tree; your fruitfulness comes from me.”  (Hosea 14:8)
  It is one that I never read before, or that didn't speak to my heart back then like it is now.

It reminds me to listen more than I speak.  
(LOOK at that bunnies big ears and quiet spirit!)

It reminds me for my love for God's creation and my love of the woods.

It reminds me that there is so much all around us that we miss,
because we are too busy, or may I be bold enough to say too *self absorbed* to notice.

Hi Kimmie, it is good to stop and reflect I sometimes feel though that I have to much time to think and am to quiet and peaceful. Its hard to get the balance right.

Well, this picture speaks to me, too, as I believe it was painted by our best friend, who is a wildlife artist.
